Our buildings help define our cities – from our iconic skylines to our historic architecture. They are where our citizens, live, work, study and play. These buildings are also one of the biggest sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, accounting for over half of total city emissions on average, and a significant source of air pollution. Currently, half a million people die each year due to outdoor air pollution caused by energy used in buildings.

The project (planned for completion in 2019) is part of a study that compares the practical comparisons of different energy concepts for highly efficient, ecological and economically operated multi-family dwellings. One goal here is to achieve the lowest possible energy and heating demand in the operation of the building. For this purpose, different variants were already planned and selected for the construction, such as heating system and building shell according to the latest research findings.

Concept, Objectives and Methodology   The CREATE technology is a compact thermal energy storage system for the buildings sector. It will be the game changer in the transformation of our existing building stock towards near-zero energy buildings. The project will release the full potential of renewable energy by enabling effective integration of heat storage into Europe’s building stock.

The 3-storey detached house was completed in 2019 and was built as a mixed construction (solid / wood).    The basis for the planning is an energy-efficient and ecological construction, which ensures a sustainable lifestyle with low energy consumption and associated minimum energy costs.    The heating of the object takes place via an air heat pump. The installation of a comfort ventilation ensures fresh, healthy air.

Turkey’s building sector’s energy demand is growing rapidly, at a rate of 4.4% on average, effectively rendering it the one sector with the largest energy consumption among all end-use sectors, representing around one third of the country’s total final energy consumption.   The sector’s energy demand is characterised by a high share of gas and electricity use, with these two accounting for two-thirds of the sector’s total energy demand.
